Health care professionals should take the individuality of their patientís needs into consideration when providing services. This is because each person has different values, goals, and characteristics that can impact how they want to be cared for in a medical setting; as such itís important not only to know what your individual wants but also why youíre choosing this particular treatment option over others available at an earlier stage during consultations or treatments themselves.
Person-centered values are the foundation of person-centered practices.

There are several approaches and tools that can be used to support person-centered practice.
The government has long been aware that there is a need to personalize healthcare in order for people not only to feel cared about but also have control over their own lives. In the mid-2000s they began working on putting this agenda into practice with two white papers: ďOur HealthĒ (2005) and Putting People First!Ē(2007).
The personal budget has been a revolutionary idea in care services. The underlying premise was that individuals receiving these highly regulated and controlled needs-based benefits from the state should have choice and control over how their money is spent, leading to an era where they could receive funding through various methods such as direct payments.
Dimensions Activate has created a research-based model that aims to improve care in an individualized way. They promote other person-centered thinking tools such as one-page profiles and relationships which provide insight into how patients are feeling so they can be better cared for by their providers.
